If you live in Austin, Texas, you may not want to put the shorts into storage just yet. In early November, you’re usually more worried about how you’re going to prepare your turkey rather than staying cool, but this is not the case in Austin. Weather forecasters, for the week of November 5th, reported that temperatures would reach the high 80s. That Sunday saw a high temperature of 87 degrees, which should give pool owners a reminder of the importance of maintaining their pools. While the season for playing Marco Polo and floating the day away are closing, these temperatures indicate that summer is not ready to go just yet.
Maintaining Your Pool
So how does one go about maintaining and repairing their pool to ensure it’s ready to go when they need it? The most important thing to understand is that it’s going to happen eventually for every pool owner. Parts get worn down with frequent use, and if you live in Austin, you know that the summers can get hot. Pools are a perfect way to cool down on a hot day, so you’re bound to run into trouble eventually. Oftentimes, it is only a small issue where a part is old or breaks down. However, if you aren’t mindful of these issues and let them go by the wayside, you might find yourself in a much bigger heap of trouble.
When you find that your pool isn’t up to par, you’ll need to seek Austin pool repair. Technicians from a reputable company can assess what exactly is wrong with your pool and recommend repairs that should put your pool in top working order. Common issues with pools include problems with the filtration system, the heater, pool pumps and motors, pool pump valves and pressure gauges as well as malfunctioning pool baskets, floating chlorinators, vacuums and skimming poles. These issues can quickly be corrected by the right pool service company.
So how does one find the right Austin pool repair company? Given the internet, it’s never been easier. Websites like Yelp will give you a myriad of reviews that will offer users’ experiences with the pool company. The Better Business Bureau can indicate problems and complaints with the company as well. Word of mouth is a good source too. Ask your friends, family and neighbors who own pools about who they sought to have their pool repaired and maintained and find out whether or not that company is worthwhile. The recent weather in Austin is indicative of the fact that summer will come sooner than you realize. Be prepared for it by having your pool ready to go.
